The second half of the husband and wife duo who pleaded guilty to stealing luggage from Sky Harbor International Airport was sentenced Tuesday morning.

Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Paul McMurdie sentenced Keith King to 10-1/2 years in prison followed by four years of supervised probation. The judge also ordered King to pay more than $83,500 in restitution.

Police said King and his wife took luggage from baggage claim and kept it in their Waddell home.

The luggage thefts dated back to 2005. Police arrested the couple in November.

King pleaded guilty in September to two counts of burglary and one count each of theft, drug possession and trafficking in stolen property.

Stacy Legg King was sentenced in August to 3-1/2 years in prison after she pleaded guilty to theft, trafficking in stolen property and a dangerous drug violation. The judge also sentenced her to be on five years of supervised probation once she's released and pay more than $86,600 in restitution.
